My passion is life long learning, getting to know people's differing lives and views.
As a journalist I like to dig out relevant stories, producing them for the most suitable media - be it radio or TV, print media, in a book or on the web. Some specialties: Social subjects, migration, science related stories, critical views of religion and the churches.
As media trainer I love to empower people who have a story to tell. I train them in dealing with the media, and at present I coach scientists all over Europe.
I have been working also for the empowerment of freelancers through advice giving and publications. This is through the trade union's hotline mediafon and the WDR-Dschungelbuch, a handbook for freelancers working for Germany's largest public broadcaster.
